The real problem here is the way that the BLM is organized. If you look at the other land management agencies like the Forest Service, Park Service and Fish and Wildlife Service, you will see that they are regionalized. Their regions often cover more that one state. But the BLM has a director in every state and their offices are really run by the congressional delegations.
When I was BLM director in the 90's for President Clinton I thought the system was bad. A case in point was the intern programs run for the congressional offices. Senator Pete Domenici would always have a BLM employee interning in his office. When the one or two year term was up he would have them placed in New Mexico in high ranking positions. He then got what ever he wanted from them. I had attempted to stop this practice by making all interns ineligible to serve in the state of the congressional offices where they interned. Of course that went nowhere with the Clinton White House and Interior Secretary Bruce Babbitt, as he did to all his employees, never backed us up.
The BLM need to regionalize along some well thought out ecosystem parameters. The Colorado Plateau could be one for example. That would include portions of four conner states. This might slightly depoliticize the agency and take away undue influence from single lawmakers. And the BLM need to go after people like Bundy in the courts. He is a thief and should be treated like one.
